Good shows are a welcome relief to the summer heat. I like the banter of a great talk-show and The Chewhas a charismatic mix of hosts (some chefs, some just full of charm--yes, Clinton, I'm talking to you) and great ideas for entertaining and just living better. Why not chill and spend summertime with The Chew!

In this episode, Clinton (The cocktail master) whips up a cocktail with beets! Daphne challenges Carla and Michael to a "crazy food combo" challenge. And there's plenty of pop-culture news to keep the trend lovers like me tuning in.

Here's the recipe for the
